Jul 29, 2005 — The deep discount giant Walmart is in a full court press to boost its presence in the North Country. Construction is underway on Supercenters in Leray and Lowville. This week, the Malone Town Council approved an environmental impact statement for a Supercenter there. In Potsdam, the town planning board is getting close to voting on Walmart's plan for a Supercenter on Route 11. Critics say the board isn't holding Walmart to a high standard.
